The PATH act law prohibits the IRS from releasing tax refunds prior to February 15thfor taxpayers claiming the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) or the Additional Child Tax Credit (ACTC) tax credits. The law may create tax refund delays up to six weeks or more.Therefore, any returns claiming the EITC or ACTC credit(s) that is prepared in the early part of the filing season will not be released for up to 4 weeks instead of the standard 21 days or less timeframe.The delay is to help prevent fraud due to identity theft and refund fraud.

Aggressive & threatening phone calls by criminals impersonating IRS agents remain to be the top of the phone scams list. It has been a persistent and pervasive problem for many taxpayers for many months. Scammers are able to alter caller ID numbers to make it look like the IRS is calling. They use fake names and bogus IRS badge numbers. They often leave “urgent” callback requests. They prey on the most vulnerable people, such as the elderly, newly arrived immigrants and those whose first language is not English. Scammers have been known to impersonate agents from IRS Criminal Investigation as well.
